Delivering a Smartphone-Based Intervention for Anxiety in the Community

Students studying in the Cathedral Commons room from above


The goal of this project is to develop a new partnership between four Pitt schools (Arts & Sciences, Medicine, Health & Rehab Sciences, SCI) and local middle schools to scale up, disseminate, and test a new technology-based solution to the widespread problem of anxiety disorders in community children and teens. Specifically, we will test the feasibility and effectiveness of delivering a novel smartphone-based mobile health intervention for childhood anxiety disorders via behavioral health therapists embedded in schools. Data will be used to support commercialization, widespread dissemination, and future applications for federal funding and FDA clearance as a digital therapeutic.
